Congratulations to Anna Chaddock, who recently celebrated 25 years as a Family Day Care Educator with Uniting Education Queensland.

In that time Anna has nurtured and loved more than 150 children, many with additional needs, and been a vital support for their families.

“Working as a day care educator means you have lovely community connections. I see young adults in the community, who I looked after as children, and it’s a wonderful feeling to know you’ve been part of their young lives,” she said.

“It’s nice to know you’re making a difference. I think the most important thing is just listening to the children, letting them lead the way with what interests them and what they enjoy doing, and making each child feel special.”
